Day to Day Adventures


There are so many words to describe Joshua.

Determined, noisy, creative, talkative, intelligent, busy, wiggly, loving, & snuggly.

Since I was never a 7 year old boy I confess that sometimes I really don't understand him--however--Steve assures me that he is perfectly normal. Sometime he really reminds me of Calvin--you know the cartoon character. There is really is a lot going on in that little head and I don't have any idea what it is!

Things that amaze me about Joshua. He is a bottomless pit. You would think it was the teenage boy in my house who can't get enough to eat. NOPE it is the 7 year old. I am afraid of what the teenage years will be like. He asks me what is for supper before breakfast is over. I feed him double snacks and he's still hungry before everyone else!

Joshua also loves to be on the computer. He has learned to play Age of Empires which is his brother's game & I think he got it when he was over 10. Joshua does great on it. It is astounding what he has learned from it. While studying the Middle Ages in history we read about notable people from that time period(ie King Richard, Robin Hood, Attila the Hun, etc) and he will pipe up with "Oh I learned about him in Age of Empires." Then he will proceed to tell me all about that person. It is great our computer games are so "educational." :)

Joshua is the people person in our family. He would rather hang out with people than eat & that is saying something. He is the slowest eater at the dinner table for just that reason. He loves to play games. Some of his favorites are UNO, Blink, Galactic Heros, Pictionary, & many others. I am lucky to have Joshua around--I never go without hugs. He gives them to me constantly!

I know he is an animal lover too. He takes care of feeding our cats. I know that Popcorn, our 3 legged cat, enjoys hims like when he traps him under the laundry baskets or when he "helps" him and our dog get together.

He is my youngest. He drives me crazy & keeps me on my toes. He is ALL boy and he is just like Steve. Must be why I love him!
